I'm looking for my next amp. I have a Laney VC30 combo that's nice, but I have to wind it up to get the goods. (Not a bad thing, just can't really make friends by doing that at midnight in a 4-plex apartment building.) I'm looking for a killer rig that sounds the same in the bedroom as it would in Madison square garden - something I don't have to run wide-open.(Looking to jam eventually, so it'll get the chance to run wide open.) I've been told the Marshall JCM800 is like that, and I believe the MESA/Boogie recto-based amps (D-rec, Stiletto, etc) are familiar with that procedure. Or should I just grab whatever I want and run it through a Hot Plate? Any thoughts?
